    The Callisto Protocol Unable to Lead Sales Charts in Debut Month

    And the hits just keep on coming.

    Over the weekend, information was shared suggesting that The Callisto Protocol failed to meet sales expectations by a considerable margin. Today we have further information, this time from the NPD Group, that sheds some additional light on just how poorly this new sci-fi horror/shooter performed.

    The NPD Group shared their sales information for December 2022 along with their full year 2022 details. The full year isn't all that exciting,...

    Ubisoft Delays Skull and Bones a Sixth Time, Cancels Three Other Games

    Ubisoft isn't doing so hot these days.

    On Wednesday, Ubisoft said that they are "facing major challenges as the industry continues to shift towards mega-brands and long-lasting titles that can reach players across the globe, across platforms, and business models." That is to say, some of Ubisoft's latest releases didn't perform all that well and the company isn't doing as well as they had expected.

    Ubisoft flatly says that their "recent launches have not...

    Ubisoft Confirms Return to Steam with Assassin's Creed Valhalla

    Ubisoft to return to Steam's "unrealistic" distribution model.

    Ubisoft is returning to Steam after they took their ball and went home about two years ago. In 2019, Ubisoft decided to stop releasing their games through Steam, instead opting to sell their PC releases exclusively through Ubisoft Connect (formerly Uplay) and the Epic Games Store. In the same year, Ubisoft vice president for partnerships and revenues, Chris Early, said that Steam's distribution model was "unrealistic."...

    Ubisoft Shares Very Early Look at Splinter Cell Remake

    This is all you're going to get for a long while.

    Ubisoft shared the first tiniest glimpse of the upcoming Splinter Cell remake today as part of a 20th anniversary celebration of the stealth-action franchise. When I say "tiniest glimpse" I really mean it here because all that we were shown are a few pieces of concept art for the game that is probably still a couple of years away from release.

    The image was accompanied by a statement from creative director Chris...

  • Is Ubisoft Planning a Return to Steam?

    Is Ubisoft Planning a Return to Steam?

    Recent behind the scenes changes suggest this may be a possibility.

    In 2019, the final Ubisoft game on Steam was released. That game was Trials Rising. Since then, if you were a PC owner and a fan of Ubisoft's output, you were only able to purchase their titles from their first-party Ubisoft Connect or through everyone's favorite storefront, the Epic Games Store. As the months turned to years, it seemed like Ubisoft's return to Steam just wasn't going to happen.

    This week,...

    Stop me if you've heard this one before.

    The firm* release date is now March 9, 2023. The reason given is the usual statement about how the team is hard at work polishing and balancing the game ahead of launch and wouldn't you know it? They just need some more time....

    And now for more bad news about Ubisoft.

    Ubisoft recently revealed a bunch of new Assassin's Creed games they are working on for the foreseeable future. One of those games is called "Codename Red" and it is an Assassin's Creed game that fans have been begging for, for several years now. It's set to take place in Japan and you're going to play as a cool ninja. Sounds great!... There's just a bit of an issue.

    It seems as though several Ubisoft developers do not...
